I remember this hotel as a boy of 7 years old. 1951 I was totally blown away by the new appearance, service, and total professional, friendly service. Everything clean, comfortable and really felt like I was at home. (In Springfield MO shooting a movie trailer as an actor with high standards...Rick Jey)

My wife and I like to seek out classic lodgings along Old Route 66, so on our way back to Michigan on a trip to Texas we decided to check out the old Rail Haven motor lodge, which is now a Best Western motel. The place is charming, with a classic car greeting arriving guests, old-style diner furnishings in the... More

We stayed here for one night and really loved all the traditional Route 66 touches, from the reception décor to the old cars and petrol pumps outside. The motel like rooms were clean and comfortable with good wifi connection. The breakfast was also good with plenty of choice and my daughter and I loved the Waffle machine!

This hotel is a wonderful trip back in history. We were greeted in such a friendly manner when we arrived. We had the family suite and the kids loved the bunk beds and having their own room. The room was immaculate!! The breakfast was the usual continental breakfast but it is in such a great area for restaurants. Several older... More

Richard B: Thank you for your review. Our family suites are very popular with children because not every hotel has a room with bunk beds. The convenience of parking near your room without stairs and elevators is a plus when unloading the car for the evening. We look forward to your return visit. More

I got a room with a fridge and microwave which is a nice plus, my room was close to the street but I did not hear the traffic in the room. Bathroom seemed colder than the room. Welcoming pets is a plus when traveling with my dog. I brought my own food so didn't go to the free breakfast. Having... More
